The Ridgeway path is an officially designated 85 mile UK national trail for walkers along the Wessex downs and Chiltern Hills. Running from near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, the path for much of its route follows ancient trackways that formed a major highway long before the Romans came to Britain. But where the old track has become a modern motor road the Ridgeway is diverted to field and woodland footpaths. Illustrated with easy-to-follow maps and with photographs of places on the way, this guide also includes a chapter by AC Fraser on the natural history of the Ridgeway, and another chapter by James Dyer, describes the archaeology of the Ridgeway. With 'Discovering The Ridgeway' in your pocket, you can enjoy some of England's loveliest countryside and finest views.
